It would be nice publicity for the Archive to have DVDs shipped with the IA label. This would be purely charity, though. The vendors are under no more legal or moral obligation than if they had purchased a tape and digitized it. Would they be bound obligated the video store in that case?

Your analogies are weak because public libraries and video stores are ubiquitous while entities such as are not.

Why do you continue to use these poor analogies instead of addressing the stated issue? You appear to have an agenda which is the rationalization of charging people for free content without adding any value. And with this basis you're going to mandate what is and what is not ethical behavior? I think not.
